25.8.7.28 mysql_get_client_version()

unsigned long mysql_get_client_version(void)

Description

Returns an integer that represents the MySQL client library version. The value has the format XYYZZ where X is the major version, YY is the release level (or minor version), and ZZ is the sub-version within the release level:

major_version*10000 + release_level*100 + sub_version

For example, "5.7.18" is returned as 50718.

As of MySQL 5.7.4 and Connector/C 6.1.3, the function value is the version of MySQL or Connector/C that provides the client library. Before MySQL 5.7.4 and Connector/C 6.1.3, the function value is the MySQL version. For Connector/C, this is the MySQL version on which the Connector/C distribution is based. For more information, see Section 25.8.4.5, “C API Server and Client Library Versions”.

An integer that represents the MySQL client library version.
